Large Wood Public Meetings | June 12 and June 13

King County's flood risk reduction and habitat restoration projects sometimes require the placement of large wood into rivers and streams. Large wood can slow down a river, create pools and hiding places for young salmon, and bolster levees or revetments that protect people and infrastructure from flood risks. If you would like to learn about King County projects that involve the placement of large wood, please join us for a conversation about our current projects.
